The Avatar as a New Literacy

As mentioned previously, I will be presenting at this conference on Friday/Saturday (who can remember what day it is when you live half the time in US time zones these days?). Here’s a reminder of the details:

“Embodiment in Virtual Environments: Exploring Literacies, Identity, Research, and Community”
Charles Kinzer, Teachers College, Columbia University
Angela Thomas, University of Sydney

I’ll be giving an updated version of a talk I gave last year for the NMC symposium about the avatar and new literacies within the 2 hour session, and we’ll be taking the participants on a little tour of SL, showing machinima, and generally having fun I hope!

This talk is an updated version of one I gave last year for the NMC. The slides to my previous talk are here:

and the podcast to go with them is here:
